Subject: Smith and Superman
It's a shame neither get screen credit, but the narrator is the former radio voice of Superman, Bud Collyer, who had just begun a run as host of "To Tell the Truth."
Charles Nasca is responsible for the 1950s modern living room sets.
The short ends with aerial footage of the Grand Canyon. Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite was to be heard underneath, but all you can hear on this footage is the sound of the film, with a few clicks and pops. At least it's not playing with someone yelling "Call for Philip Morris!" over top.
Subject: Found the Missing End Music
I would guess the sound recording is still under copyright, so I suspect it cannot appear on archive.org together.

Subject: Fantastical Wayback Machine For Audiophiles....
I am going to create my own soundtrack for this...during the silent parts (like the Grand Canyon flyover) I am going to insert the most horrifying death metal known to man. This will be a real hit at parties!!
The REALLY hilarious thing, aside from the various Mr. Smiths and their ultimate 3-dimensional cube-ality (meaning to a modern "cool" person these characters are "beyond square") is that yes the actual film itself is in mono.
I rate this 5, mostly for the comedic value, but also as an interesting look back 45 years to the Cro-Magnon days of modern audio technology....
Subject: Technology Furniture for Your Home
Beautiful color as the do-it-yourself audiophile explains sound and how it is recorded and reproduced. Of course, you don't need to do it yourself, you can buy it all from RCA - high tech for the home in finely crafted wood furniture. Wish I had the record to play for the final part of this.
